Textile Sculptures by Yumi Okita.

Textile Sculptures by Yumi Okita.


I love these bugs so much. They come from an Etsy store called irohandbags. There isn’t any information available about the creator, but the creations speak by themselves. They tell me that the artist is a nature lover , detail oriented, good with textures, skilled at combining different material…and just talented. Dear mystery artist: Congratulations!

Some of the materials used are fabric, cotton, fake fur, fabric paint, embroidery thread and wire. You can visit the shop here.

UPDATE: Thanks to my detective friend Christina Conway, we now know the name of the artist: Yumi Okita. Thanks Chris and Congratulations Yumi Okita!

  1. Morning Elsa,

    What incredible work! Thank you for sharing this, I just bought a magnificent moth, can’t wait to see it in-person.

    I found this website of the artist, her name is Yumi Okita:


    • Thanks a lot, Chris! The mystery has been solved! I’m so glad that you got the beautiful moth! It must be amazing in person. (I will update the post now)
